Soblet-26 and Soblet-8 appear to represent the same person because: Soblet-26 is an obvious duplicate of Soblet-8, and should never have been created as recently as April 2016. The parents will likewise need to be merged, and all merges need to be done with the higher numbers merging into the lowest numbers, per WikiTree guidelines. Please exercise caution when creating of adding 'new' profiles. Dealing with obvious duplication such as these takes productive time and energy away from others. Thank you.
